London based singer-songwriter Russell Joslin launches his 4th studio album ‘Hey Mathematician’ with an intimate show at Dalston’s Servant Jazz Quarters. After touring mainland Europe extensively for the past 3 years this is a rare homecoming gig to showcase both the new album’s songs and the now fully road-tested duet between Russell and his Australian girlfriend and singing partner Sarah McCaig. Expect strong and confrontational songs, dark and intriguing harmonies and a spontaneous stage presence from this duet.
